A Twitter teaser for the new season shows that Hope Valley has recently fallen on hard times because the coal mine was destroyed, the oil wells dried up, and the foundry closed. But people in the area have come together to face the problems. Some people have started a swap meet, and Lee (Kavan Smith) has stepped up and hired as many people as he can to work at the sawmill. Plus, Lee’s wife Rosemary (Pascale Hutton) is about to have her first child in a few weeks.
In the clip, Elizabeth (Krakow) says, “We’ve all rolled up our sleeves and depended on generosity, kindness, and neighbors helping neighbors.” “Everyone is committed to doing their part and having fun at the same time.”

In recent years, new seasons have begun airing in February or March.
“There are good reasons for every decision, most of which the #Heartties will never know, but #WCTH has been underestimated and written off many times before. I’ll leave all the guessing to Mark Twain… “‘The news of my death has been greatly exaggerated,'” Bird tweeted on Feb. 7. In another tweet, he mentioned that the show “consistently gets the highest ratings for scripted series on Sunday nights.”
